Says Raptor Rehabber, “This is Oakley the juvenile Great Horned Owl. He came to us after a Tornado hit in Kansas a few years ago. Whenever we get babies, we try to put them together for comfort and security. He was by himself so I put a puppet in with him until I got some other ones his age. I had just fed him and I use a camouflaged sheet over me so he doesn’t see me as a food source. I wanted to see what he would do when he heard a strange voice, so I played the puppet. Here are the results! I only did this once. He was finally released a few months after this video. Our center is a nonprofit organization, that takes in on average 175 birds a year that have bee injured or orphaned. We also find forever home for ones that cannot go back to the wild, but are comfortable living in captivity and become educational ambassadors.”
Waking I Dream, a novel by Kim Lombard Robson
Waking I Dream
I'm excited to announce that my second novel, Waking I Dream, is now available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback. Waking I Dream is the sequel to Dreaming I Wake, and the second book in the Dreaming Trilogy. In it, we find that Jim McQueen's disabled sister, Joan, does indeed lead a rich inner life. In her potent dreams of another life, in another time, Joan is a math shark with a photographic memory, a WWII-era OSS undercover agent and cryptologist, and a globe-trotting Nazi hunter. This is the world that is most authentic and tangible to Joan.
What I’m Reading Now
An Instance of the Fingerpost
It is 1663, and England is wracked with intrigue and civil strife. When an Oxford don is murdered, it seems at first that the incident can have nothing to do with great matters of church and state....Yet, little is as it seems in this gripping novel, which dramatizes the ways in which witnesses can see the same events yet remember them falsely. Each of four narrators—a Venetian medical student, a young man intent on proving his late father innocent of treason, a cryptographer, and an archivist—fingers a different culprit.
